Speaker: Object-Based Learning
May 23, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Thursday, May 23, 6pm-8pm
$5 for members, $8 for non-members, free for teachers
What can you learn from a ship’s painting, a 19th-century logbook, or a souvenir from China? How can these objects be used to teach? In this interactive presentation, PMM staff will discuss the benefits of object-based learning. Guidelines will be provided for using Museum artifacts as primary sources in the classroom and as starting points for storytelling.
